Low Carb Mexican Meatballs – Diabetic Chicken Chipotle Meatball Recipe

These low carb Mexican meatballs will be a favorite of your weeknight dinner table:) I created this diabetic chicken chipotle meatball recipe to keep southwest flavors on our dinner table without it being tacos or taco bowls … again.  That’s a standard Tuesday night dinner at our house!!

I’m not sure about you, but I love meatballs!! Although, most meatball recipes call for breadcrumbs and I avoid white processed carbs not because I’m totally gluten free, but because they lack any nutritional value or real reason to eat them.  Every time I eat white processed carbs aka breadcrumbs or bread in general I feel pretty sluggish and they always require more insulin than I’d really like.

Besides taco bowls, my baked turkey meatballs (super easy Italian meatballs, low carb of course) are super popular for weeknight dinner at our house, but again I gotta keep trying new things or else I won’t have any new recipes to add tot he blog either.  LOL:)

This diabetic chicken chipotle meatball recipe is super easy, here’s a photo of the ingredients in the bowl before i mixed them with my hands.

Then, I just balled the meatballs and added them to a sprayed foiled sheet pan and baked these, super easy!! And I mixed up an avocado sauce in the blender that was delish and full of omegas!! It was a little runnier than a traditional guacamole, but amazing for dipping the low carb Mexican meatballs in.

Oh and the sauce… I know I mentioned it before, but it was SO EASY:) I added 1 large avocado, 1/4 cup of avocado oil, a handful of cilantro and some garlic powder & it was DELISH!!
